† Fashion & News Update ...

I have seen some shoes that I believe need me in their lives. Or vice versa. Prepare to drool.

One thing I saw that amazed me this week was this image. Check out the Paris film premiere for Life of Pi Movie - I want to go to a swim-in-cinema! It looks magical.

In other news Romeo Beckham is the new face of Burberry at the ripe old age of ten! Mammy and Daddy Beckham have fronted huge campaigns for Armani and H & M so I guess it's no surprise that Romeo has been snapped up. 

The lovely folks at the style HQ of interviewed me recently about blogging, fashion and journalism.

In closing - to embrace the festive cheer check out my pug Coco rocking his Sultry Santa look!

Happy Holidays! xo

My photoshoot & interview with!

This is my outfit from my recent interview and photoshoot with award-winning online Irish fashion retailer about blogging, personal style and much more. I am loving furry hats this winter! The one I wore for the photoshoot is vintage. They are so warm and will never go out of style. I teamed it with a floral pastel shirt from Topshop and a mod peach minidress ♥ My spanish brogues are from the 1980's - they were my Mam's.

You can check out the interview just click here!

You can 'HYPE' this look on just click here!

My leather briefcase is from a second- hand store and was a steal at €3! My leather fleeced jacket is Billabong, I picked it up in the flagship store in NYC last February.

Hope you like the look! :)

Hospital announces Kate Middleton's nurse found dead after prank call scandal

Today is a very sad day as a nurse has allegedly taken her own life due to the Kate Middleton Prank phone call scandal. Kate Middleton was admitted to hospital with a severe morning sickness called "hyperemisis gravidarum" and a Nurse on her ward was the victim of a prank that meant information leaked to the media.

The Nurse in question,  Jacintha Saldanha was a victim of a hoax by the radio pranksters from Australia. The King Edward VII Hospital has confirmed that the nurse involved has died. Paramedics tried to revive the woman at her address in Central London but she was found dead at the scene. Radio presenters Mel Grieg and Michael Christian of station 2DayFM made the prank phone call pretending to be the Queen and were transferred to the ward and had a brief conversation with the nurse on duty about Kate Middleton's condition. The presenters violated the privacy of the Duchess and it was odd that they got through so easily with their accents and overall behaviour during the erratic phone call. The hospital has apologised profusely for the "breach in security" and to date Australian station 2DayFm public statement has been that they "apologise for any inconvenience caused" by the prank phone call and admitted their surprise at being transferred through naming it "the easiest prank call to date". The radio station in question 2DayFM is no stranger to making the headlines was heavily criticised  in 2009 due to their treatment of a young rape victim on air.

Will Anna Wintour leave Vogue?

Obama wants Editor- in - Chief Anna Wintour to exit Vogue & play an Ambassador's role but how would the fashion hive survive without its queen bee? A Bloomberg report has indicated that President Obama is considering Vogue Head Honcho Anna Wintour for U.S. ambassadorships in the U.K. and France. In the past, Anna Wintour has co-hosted a high-profile fundraiser in New York in June for Obama's presidential campaign and assisted with a line of Obama merchandise that pulled in a sizeable $40 million. Allegedly Wintour is up against Obama campaign finance chairman Matthew Barzun for the U.K. post and Marc Lasry for the top job at the U.S. Embassy in Paris. 

What do you think? Is it high time for a fusion of fashion and politics? Wintour could definitely teach politicians about the style stakes. Could she mirror the influence of Jackie O with her polished look and classy demeanor?

Rita Ora cheats on Rob Kardashian 20 times?

Celebrity duo Rob Kardashian has taken to Twitter to rant about Rita Ora: "I'm actually disgusted a woman could give up her body to more than 20 dudes in less than a year's time while trying to start a career".

Rob Kardashian added: "She cheated on me with nearly 20 dudes while we were together, I wonder how many she will sleep with now..."

Rob's older sister and X Factor USA host Khloe Kardashian Odom has also got in on the action by tweeting: "Cheaters never prosper @RobKardashian ill be home today… Try and smile little brother,' to which Rob replied with: "I Love You."

All tweets have since been deleted and Rita Ora is yet to comment. Obscenities are trending all over the internet.

What do you think? Do you believe Rob's taking to twitter was the right way to vent his frustrations?
